    Does anyone know if its possible to adjust the cam chain tensioner on the 1.8t sport quattro to stop that annoying rattleing that comes from it at idle speed, if you have the right adjustment tool 3366 tool is it ?

    It's not adjustable, it's operated by oil pressure. It's more likely you have low oil pressure causing the issue

    Thats quite an interesting comment - had not thought of that, so oil pump fault possibly ? or partially blocked pick up filter in the sump could possibly be the cause?

    It could simply be worn and need replaced. They don't last forever. Do the chain as well
